People like Deputy Landau are the worst antisemites, Professor Jorga, the Prime Minister, said in Parliament to-day, when he read out a report on the recent disturbances in Jassy from the Prefect of Jassy. The Prefect had refused to give any information about the occurrences to Deputy Landau when he was in Jassy investigating the matter, the Premier explained, because he was afraid that Deputy Landau’s presence in Jassy might provoke further trouble.

The Culture House in Jassy, from which the members of the Iron Guard marched out when they started the disturbances, and Jassy University have both been reopened, although Professor Jorga, it is stated, demanded that they should be kept closed.
